Twitting and Facebook uploads are common among the teens. However, the kids of the South Africa are taking it too seriously. Next to South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria are caught in the trap of social networking.

Social networking isn't bad but too much of anything can leave adverse impact over our health. Therefore, parents are being urged to keep a tab over the children's exposure to the social networking sites.
